LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The Wyoming Cowboys and Colorado State Rams will renew their "Border War" rivalry this Wednesday in the 205th meeting between the two archrivals in basketball. The Cowboys will enter Wednesday's game with an 11-8 overall record and a 2-3 Mountain West Conference mark. CSU is 14-4 overall and 4-2 in conference play. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m., Mountain Time from Wyoming's Arena-Auditorium. There is no television coverage of Wednesday's game.
Wyoming holds a 40-game advantage in the overall series, having recorded 122 wins against 82 losses. Wyoming also holds a 10-6 advantage in Mountain West meetings in the "Border War."
The series has always been a hard fought one, but since the two schools became founding members of the Mountain West Conference in the 1999-2000 season, the games have been amazingly close.
The University of Wyoming Athletics Department is encouraging all fans to wear gold to Wednesday's "Border War" as part of the "Gold Rush" promotion.
"Gold Rush" is being presented by the Brown & Gold Outlet and First Interstate Bank. Official "Gold Rush" T-shirts can be purchased at any Brown & Gold Outlet location, including the Arena-Auditorium site, prior to the game for only $5.
Additionally, the first 300 UW Students to arrive at the game will receive a free "Gold Rush" T-shirt courtesy of the UW Athletics Department.
The Cowboy Sports Network radio broadcast will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the 25 affiliate stations of CSN.
